Game pad issues on Shield

Postby xDetoursx » Thu Nov 07, 2019 3:28 pm

Hi, using Shieldtv (2015) with the latest updates. The Nvidia controller works fine and is fully functional. But, the x-box controller and PS4 controller do not work in games.

They are recognized in Retrox and I can navigate through the main menu fine, but once a game loads, I can't start the game or play. If I start the game using the Nvidia controller, the other controllers still do not work in the game.

Thx

Are they mapped as second and third controllers?

You need to map them in Settings -> Gamepads

That will change, but that's how it works at this moment.

Ok, so a simple controller question is turning in to something completely different.

To answer the above questions, yes the controllers were mapped and showed up as 2nd and 3rd controllers.

But I just went in to play and got a notice for an update for the Emumovies. When trying to update I got a Parsing error and couldn't open Retrox. I followed the thread for the fix and deleted everything and reinstalled. The update took and I added all my games folders.

Now when I go to play a game it force exits back to the Shield main screen and RetroX closes. Doesn't matter which system I try to play, as soon as I open it and the game list populates, it kicks me out.

Edit: Apparently the update didn't take. Started Retrox again and got the update message for EmuMovies. Tried installing it and get the Parsing error again

Edit 2: uninstalled and reinstalled again. This time it seems to be working fine. Xbox controller works too.

Ahh..the drama. Lol
